Excellent hotel and staff. I was surprised as I had stayed in a La Quinta in the area before and it was horrible. I booked a room with queen beds and I was given a double, not happy at all. However, here I was very happy, was given the type of room I booked. I will most likely try and...

From the rates of hotels in the Tampa area, this by far is the best value for the money. Staff was very friendly and professional, rooms very clean, updated and comfortable. Felt very safe. I was surprised because of the quality of the hotel in this area. I will definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

We pulled into the parking lot and thought, oh no! But were we in for a pleasant surprise. Brandy and the staff were very accommodating. Some of the furniture was a little outdated and in need of replacement; however, the room was clean. WalMart was in walking distance - would stay again

I will never stay at any of La Quinta hotel again. I have never had such a rude check in clerk as Brandy. Seemed as though she hated her job. Our toilet wouldn't flush and she was rude when coming to fix it.She was the only employee I saw through the entire stay. The refrigerator was barely cool, the microwave...

Arrived at approximately 4:30 PM, for a 3:00 check in. So, how come our room was not cleaned, stocked with towels, and ready for us? I shudder to think at what would have happened if we arrived at 3 PM on the dot. Really? Rooms should be ready at, if not before, check in time. Booked the hotel through Booking.com...

Do not stay at this hotel if you want decent accommodations and customer service. Condition of room was poor (broken sink basin, toilet leaked, unfinished paint on walls), hallways smelled musty, floors were dirty, breakfast was subpar, front desk staff was rude, reservation was incorrect and we were locked out of room after first night, credit card was billed twice...

This hotel had a very good breakfast and it was very convenient to Busch Gardens, the zoo, and the Florida aquarium. The staff was very nice and the rooms were super clean. The bed was very comfortable and we will be staying there again if we come back.

After a miserable experience in my previous hotel, I moved to this location. Guarang Patel, the manager, and the entire staff was welcoming, and I immediately felt comfortable and cared for. Fantastic room, above average breakfast included, and a manager that felt like a close uncle. Thanks Guarang!
